Sons of Horus Master of Signals and Volkite Heavy Support Squad
I had trouble with the gold Sons of Horus Transfers. They just seem to leave tiny silver patches near the gold areas. I used every technique possible on these guys, including gloss varnish and repeated micro-sol applications to no avail. This batch turned out better than the terminators, but not good enough for me to keep using the transfers. I hadn't planned on painting a volkite squad, but knowing that I will likely face swarm tyranids forces at the Nova Open Narrative Event, I knew needed something to handle crowd control.
Photos of the Storm Eagle are coming once I figure out the basing. I should probably paint up two troop units so I have a legal force points wise, but I think a predator would be more fun.
